Put God First

Matthew 6:31-33 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God  above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

I was listening to my new Compact Disk in the truck on the drive home from work and the lyrics of a few songs caught my ear. (1) “Put God first, just to live your life.” (2) “Make more time for prayer and the Man upstairs cause I believe we can move any mountain when we're good.” (3) “That Sunday morning choir calling, church doors open wide. That hallelujah, shoot right through ya, make you feel alive.” These are all great lines of truth from Country music recording artists Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line. The world system will tell you that we need to live for yourself and live in the moment. This empty lie of the enemy designed to feed the greedy flesh desires and take our eyes off of the source of true love and joy in life found in putting God first (our Creator Father), dig your roots in family (which God designed) second, worship, pray and fellowship with brothers and sisters in the faith (our church family that Christ establish as the body) and then reflect Jesus Christ to your fellow mankind (who God created). This is the recipe for true and lasting happiness and contentment on earth. Be holy and put God first.

Matthew 22:36-38 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.”

In Christ, Brian
